Stawell Soccer Club's soccer mums hosted its first session on the pitch.
Training for an hour on Friday nights, the Pink Pioneers is for anyone who is wanting to learn a new skill.
Soccer mums, an initiative of VicHealth and is presented across Victoria into communities by Football Victoria.
The coordinator behind the Stawell group, Kym Sirre said a representative from Football Victoria was present to facilitate the first session.
"We had a really good response from it and it was a lot of fun," she said.
"We ran through some of the reasons why we were there which I think is really important.
"The group is a great way to bring mums together who may sit in the car or people who might be new to town and want to find a way to meet new people."
Mrs Sirre's husband is the junior coach and her two sons play in the junior team.
"I've never played soccer before and to be honest I don't know all the rules," she said.
"We're all in the same boat. I think there's one participant who knows a little about it but that's the beauty of the group - we're all on the same level in terms of knowledge of the sport.
"At the end of the day it's about getting out there and being active. It's better than sitting in the car watching."
Mrs Sirre said there was numerous positive reinforcements from different parts of the club.
"The session was on while the juniors were training and some were disappointed they couldn't get over and cheer us on," she said.
"We've had the full support of the committee and players - it's a great initiative and I don't think I've laughed as hard as I did for a long time.
"It's about promoting a place for like minded women to do some exercise while having fun and meeting new people."Kym Sirre
"Mum's can be so time poor and a lot of parents are there anyway so it's a good excuse to get the runners out and come join in."
Not just for mothers of children playing soccer, Mrs Sirre said the label soccer mums doesn't describe the group in it's entirety.
"Yes the group is called soccer mums but we did have some others who weren't associated with the club in any way come along," she said.
"It's about promoting a place for like minded women to do some exercise while having fun and meeting new people."
"Soccer mums runs every Friday night at 5.30pm for the next six weeks with another session already on the horizon."
